Bronze Mold of Gary Player's Hands By Artist Tico Torres


Exhibited in the British Golf Museum alongside many of the finest golf memorabilia in the world are Tico Torres' bronze cast hands of major champions, a collection of 10 studies including Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player as offered here. Artist Tico Torres has said of the collection: “I wanted to honor the golfers who had won Majors...It gives future generations a permanent record of these great grips from history...and hopefully they are very beautiful too.” Tico Torres is perhaps better known as the lead drummer since 1983 in the Rock Hall of Fame musical group Bon Jovi. Torres passions culminate in these hands detailing the grip of The Black Knight, golf and fine art sculpting. Interlocking grip, with each of the hundreds of subtle hand wrinkles forming the astonishingly lifelike hands of the 9-time major champion and career grand slam club member since 1965 - Gary Player. As Torres did with each of these extremely limited pieces, he signed his name on the flat of the right hand along with the #5 of the low run deluxe and heavy bronze casting. Finishing the three dimensional rendering is a grip on the end of a shaft, resulting in a stunning composition that demands inclusion in the finest golf sculpture collections.  A signed letter from the family comes with this lot.
